Fraser Valley’s swimming squad (Zone 3) won two gold medals today in the Boys C 1m final and the Girls C 3m final at South Surrey Pool.
“I’m really excited,” she said. “I didn’t expect it at all, so it’s a really great surprise.”
Although she just started diving this year, Waiz is really proud of the progress she has made. She has gone from not knowing much about diving to winning a gold medal. Waiz has participated in other dive meets, but this is her first appearance at the B.C Summer Games.
“It’s surprising to think that one year ago, I couldn’t do any of this stuff,” said Waiz. “I couldn’t do a flip or anything.”
She says she enjoys diving and plans to continue competing in dive meets.
